Voting is now open for the prestigious Ken Stephen Medal - to be presented at this year's Dally M event to recognise an NRL player for involvement in charity work, youth development or community support that demonstrates his ability as a community role model.
No doubt Tim Mannah is in career-best form, and alongside his efforts on the field, the Dyldam Parramatta Eels Captain remains committed to the community of Western Sydney.
Tim founded his own charity, the Mannah Foundation, to carry on the legacy of generosity, courage and compassion left by his late brother, Jon Mannah, who passed away in 2013.
The Foundation works with multiple charities to funnel funds raised to support young people who are struggling emotionally, financially, or physically.
Mannah also works as an ambassador and friend of the Ronald McDonald House at Westmead, Stella Fellas, Footy Colors Friday, the End It Movement and Aces in Action.
Tim is also a mentor and close friend to Tim Jelacic (Tuff Timmy), an eight-year-old boy suffering from terminal brain cancer who he met through Eels’ charity partner, Ronald McDonald House.
